A Salomon ski demo tour will ring in the new year in the Cascades. The tour will be at Stevens Pass on Dec. 31 and Mission Ridge on Jan. 1. The company will be promoting its BBR ski.

Here’s the sales pitch  from Salomon:

The revolutionary Salomon BBR ski was unveiled last winter and is hitting retail shelves this fall. Known as the product you’ve got to “ski to believe,” the Salomon BBR is touring again to give more people the opportunity to experience the radical V-shape design, oversized tip, rocker, narrow waist and pintail, resulting in a super playful ski on any mountain in any condition. Salomon is also partnering with Skiing Interactive to provide a digital national tour map showcasing the stops.

The BBR ski is the latest innovation by Salomon ski designer Bertrand Krafft, (aka: BeBeR) the shaper behind groundbreaking innovation in skiing, the X Scream Series and Pocket Rocket.  Inspired by the spontaneity and freedom of action found in water sports, the BBR ski offers the liberty to carve, cruise, float and play.

Keep tabs on the four regional tours with the Skiing Interactive website and the Salomon BBR Facebook page.
